Friday 28th January 2011 Weigh in 70.4kg...Verdict 600gm loss is great considering how much food I have actually eaten, I am away on holiday this week so I'm using different scales so this loss may not be entirely accurate....will have a better idea next week.


  1. Hi Michelle,

    The food you eat looks so good. How do you make those mushrooms? Since October I have lost 9 pounds! It's awesome and I'm so happy. At 180 pounds, I have 30 more to go with a goal of Aug 1 which will mark 1 year for me. Here's my question: I tend to eat meat for every meal, is that ok? Or only ok for the short term? Also, is it possible to not lose weight but still be slimming down?


    *happy new year

  2. Hey Kelli

    Thanks, the mushrooms are just the field mushrooms chopped up fried in butter to cook them then add cream, s&p and let them cook out a little so the cream reduces. That's awesome 9 pounds, you will get there! Meat is fine for every meal but at the end of the day calories I think do count especially for females. If you are exercising eg weights it's possible to drop body fat without losing on the scale, just keep an eye on your clothes they are the true sign :)

  3. Again, just want to say thank you for taking the time to post your food journal. It is so helpful to me!! Congrats on your weight loss. You are doing so well!!

  4. Thanks DollyFinn, yep pretty happy that it's on the downward once again. I'm pleased that my food journal is helpful to you also :)

  5. The funny thing is, my clothes fit pretty much the same, but I do look better in them. I guess they were really tight before! Oh well. Lol.

    Thank you for the advice and the mushroom recipe.


  6. Hello from the States! I just found your page via "Mark's daily Apple", and I've been enjoying perusing your blog entries for the past 3 days! I had one question though....have you ever posted a grocery shopping list?

  7. Hey there and Welcome!! I was like that when I first found Marks site, I think I spent about a week searching it. I have never thought of posting my grocery shopping list but since you asked maybe I will do a special post, it's a great idea, thanks :)

  8. Thanks for the consideration! I suppose it's a bit silly, but the truth is that it's easy to get all geared-up to conquer the grocery aisles while I'm at home, then as SOON as I get in the store, the distractions and usual purchases take over! Looking forward to it, when it comes! Cheers!
